When it comes to the City of Sioux Falls politics most are oblivious

I could tell you how many people a day read my blog, but I don’t want to embarrass myself. But I had to laugh at the irony of this image. While Mayor Poops mayoral opponent talks about food insecurity, housing, public transit and building permitting on FB and gets about 3-4 comments, Poops talks about gravy and gets almost 500 comments. He has been riding the gravy train for over 3 years.

One of the candidates is running for mayor of Minneapolis, while the other is running for mayor of Syox Phalls. Who do you think will win and win big? That’s right. Next!

There should really only be a race between David and Paul, because only an unconventional candidate could ever defeat an incumbent like Paul, and in a Hail Mary way. A conventional candidate, however, especially one left of center, will lose and lose big to our current mayor.

And Hail Marys do happen and work:


( and Woodstock adds: “‘Mac & Cheese’?”…. “That sounds like what a loner only eats on THG in their studio apartment”… )

How can Paul serve the Taupeville version of Edina Poutine (cake and gravy) without gravy?

#3 Pass the gravy.... Don't pass on it..... on 11.23.21 at 10:16 pm

The Taupeville version is Chick-fil-A waffle potato fries with gravy. AND, gravy is an Ironman’s Krypton. He should know better.

Pass the gravy please. I’m not looking for diet advice from the mayor. Talk about the housing shortage, inferior wages, and homeless. Why is there so much debt when the city has a half billion budget? Explain the high rise concrete structure downtown.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Tomorrow enjoy the day. Forget about inflation, shortages, holiday anxiety, the return of Trump, no marijuana, 17 year olds with an AR-15, no moisture, a spike in covid, and your favorite carwash closed for the day. If your crazy uncle, however, begins to talk, then interrupt him by asking him to pass the gravy. Maybe he needs more green bean casserole for his mouth, too.

Happy Thanksgiving! The mayor got is fill of gravy from Lloyd company. What he didn’t get Erica Beck got!

#7 Car wash open?! on 11.27.21 at 10:12 am

I drove through my rich neighborhood Thanksgiving day to deliver folding chairs to my in-laws. Then swung through Silverstar to wash the Queens Chariot. Of course it was open. Got the black beauty all shined up and vacuumed out, Queenie was happy. Left the good folks working a nice tip. Thank you Silverstar for delivering a much needed service to our great city!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, but when Cousin Kushner showed-up, did you have to hide the ham?

Were the Silverstar employees dressed as pilgrims? If so, I bet it was cute. Nothing I hate more than a dirty pilgrim, however. Is that why they always wear brown? I dreamt the other night that a local car wash place was actually a portal for time travel. No one ever comes out. Imagine pilgrims fascinated with folding chairs. AND, keep your ‘black beauty’ out of Salem. #WhatIsGravy?

Oddly enough, no, they were dressed in their typical red shirts and black pants. The towels were nice and dry, folded neatly, I appreciate that. Vacuums were powerful and made quick work of all the popcorn I spilled while driving last weekend.

I also dream of car washes being time travel portals….doesn’t everybody? I dream I go in and when I come out, all the lib’rals had moved to Minnesota, and South Dakota became a better place to raise a family!

#11 Sick of Fearing on 11.28.21 at 10:29 am

So, you came back out of your car wash portal, huh? Interesting. So, what year was it when all of the liberals had moved to Minnesota? They’re the only ones who survived the prairie fires due to climate change, huh? So, they headed east for food, water, shelter, and overall precipitation, right? Were the car washes still open in Minnesota after all of that? I am sure that after multiple prairie fires the South Dakota car washes became moot, right?

#12 scott on 11.28.21 at 4:24 pm

i don’t know which car warsh you people go to, but the freshly folded towels are always wet i stop by. but over promising, and under delivering is the south dakota way.

#13 Climate Change!! on 11.29.21 at 1:47 pm

Climate Change…you funny guy!!! Thank GOD it changed! Why when I was a lil boy, we were going to have an ice age, and we would become extinct, and in 30-40 years, us humans were able to change that to the ice all melting, and flooding our coastal cities, amazing I tell you! In 1998 everyone around here was worried about all the flooding…would ever stop raining and snowing? Now it’s dryer than Detroit L3wis’ humor!!! I’m no meteorologist, but something tells me this might be cyclical?

#14 Fear not! on 11.29.21 at 6:20 pm

So, it was going to get colder, but God changed it? Is that right? Tell me more.
